Sounds like a bad earth, could be in the plug, or the earth terminal to body or at any connection in between, i assume you have tried a different bulb just to eliminate that.

Twin filiament bulbs? Check you have wired the left one correctly. As per the diagram below. If you don't get the earth on the correct terminal then either dip or main will have the two filiaments in series and thus not very bright and poor pattern.
